Trying to get your students to apply their new economic vocabulary without repeating the definition to you? Want to assess their full understanding of these new economic terms?
While studying Economic Way of Thinking - Scarcity - Opportunity Cost (the introductory unit to most economics courses), have students do this creative writing assignment where they have to apply the vocabulary to a creative writing story.
For my high school students I used this as a homework assignment, but for younger grades this could be done in class. We shared some of the best stories aloud with the class.
Appropriate for any economics class. I originally used this assignment in an AP Micro class (vocab based on textbook McConnell and Brue Chapters 1 & 2). I do believe this assignment can be modified to do at a much younger grade level. The download is a Microsoft Word Document so the vocabulary list can be changed as needed.
Thanks for downloading! If you like this product, please leave me a review and follow my store! I am new here on TpT, but I have lots of great (and fun) economic resources to share. Many more resources to come soon!
